Ask the Experts | Ask the Electronic Access Ace | Double-Door Restroom Access Question

Question:

My customer has a restroom that has two doors. They want to push a privacy button upon ingress that will lock both doors and upon egress unlock both doors automatically.  Do you have a solution for this?

 

Answer:

There all several ways to accomplish this.  One way would be to use a multi-function relay.  In essence a man-trap.  Take a look at the Camden CX-EMF-2.  You may want to add two of the annunciators to indicate occupied.  Your locking device would have to be fail unlocked.
